As a Christmas gift to you all and for the benefit of anyone still waiting on their cartridge arriving, I have made available a ROM download for use on your Vectrex flash-cartridges or emulators such as ParaJVE.
Xmas Cart 2015 contains two games :
In “Parcel Panic” you play as one of Santa Claus’ helpers, using your grabbing arm to pick presents off the assembly line conveyor belts. Santa Claus doesn’t tolerate mistakes so be careful!
Space Tree X
“Space Tree X” : The further adventures of the tree that saved Christmas! A fun shoot-em up in the mold of Atari’s Asteroids.
*Update * “Xmas Cart 2014” is no longer available to order. It will be back on sale Xmas 2015, along with another xmas game.
“Xmas Cart 2014” contains two festive-themed games.
“Stocking Filler” is a game reminiscent of ‘Kaboom’ by Activision. The player must fill their stocking with all the falling presents while avoiding falling bombs.
“Save The Trees” is a fast paced shoot-em-up game of survival where the player must dodge or shoot falling presents and snowmen while ensuring to destroy every bomb that falls before it reaches the bottom of the screen and ruins Christmas!
The first 10 copies sold contained (at no extra charge) a modified cartridge with a USB connector to power a colour-changing christmas tree which sits on top of your Vectrex! Very festive 🙂
